Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has just unvieled details about the upcoming release of Gotham: The Complete Second Season, scheduling the wildly successful television series for release on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in August, just ahead of the third season’s premiere this fall.
Darkness saturates Gotham in its triumphant second season as the city’s villains continue to rise from the shadows, each more ambitious and depraved than the last. As Penguin continues to solidify his control over Gotham’s underworld, the battle for power in the city has become a game of interesting alliances on both sides of the law – with detectives Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) at the forefront of the fight against crime in the dangerously corrupt city.
Season Two witnesses Gordon’s moral compass wavering as he confronts Gotham City’s most notorious criminals while simultaneously attempting to gain the trust of young Bruce Wayne, a boy now clearly on the path toward the man he is destined to be. And all the while, Gotham follows the intriguing origin stories and evolution of some of the city’s most infamous personalities, including Edward Nygma/The Riddler, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze.
The release includes all 22 episodes of the series, along with a host of bonus features, such as the 2015 Comic-Con Panel. Also included is the Featurette ”Gotham by Noir Light”, discussing how Gotham is deeply cast into the film noir technique and edgy attitude. The camera’s lens is able to pick up on the subtlety for the fans to enjoy a modern update to an age old tradition, of how to paint with shadow and light.
Also look for ”Alfred: Batman’s Greatest Ally”, a look at the father/son bond between Bruce Wayne and his butler Alfred, and the depth of the mythology from the comic books.
”Cold Hearted – The Tale of Victor Fries” covers the mix of cold blood and a warm heart, as the featurette examines the humanistic melt-down of Victor Fries in pursuit of a cure for his love, Nora.
The release will be rounded by a variety of Character Featurettes.
“Gotham: The Complete Second Season” will arrive in stores on August 16 and can be yours to own for $54.98 on Blu-Ray Disc or $34.96 on DVD.
